Lets Talk About The DaddyoFive Child Abuse Scandal on Youtube!

Spread the Word!

I have thick skin when it comes to most subjects. I don’t rush in and make accusations or place judgment on people because there are two sides to every story. This is different and it’s graphic so viewer discretion is advised…


DaddyoFive is a Youtuber. I’ve never heard of him, I’m not subscribed to him, and I don’t personally know him. All of the information that I have is from multiple third parties and from what I’ve seen myself in his videos on Youtube.

Mike Martin (DaddyoFive) runs a Youtube channel that’s centered on pulling pranks on his children… well… a child in particular. Every video that I’ve watch has had only one victim and it’s the smallest child in the house. Cody. This child is put through some really stressful situations in every Youtube video while his parents laugh, and demean him. His older stepbrother consistently bullies him, his mother is always yelling at him, and his father abuses him, but most of the time it’s really subtle, like a slight jab in the arm. I’ve seen this young boy with bruises on his arms, and in tears in multiple videos.

Since this story has spread throughout social media some major news outlets have caught wind of the story and reported on it. Since everyone is questioning the parents of little Cody they’ve released a video defending themselves. They said that everything they do is fake and that they love their children. It’s only pranks… right? Right? I don’t think so. You’ve changed your story too many times for me to believe a single word you say. First everyone’s just hating, then your videos are slightly over exaggerated, and now everything is fake? Pick one story and stick to it or shut your mouth because everything you say sounds like a big lie. You’re covering your own ass because you (and your wife) like to abuse your youngest child.


Even if (and that’s a big IF) this is all scripted and Cody is in on it it’s still abuse. You can’t physically harm a child. It’s against the law and you can lose your child, and be arrested for it. Punching your kid in the arm, letting your stepson pick him up and slam him on his arm, and publicly humiliating him is child abuse dude. How do you not know this? I have four children and I would never do any of the shit that I’ve seen you do to your son. You go out of your way to hurt that child and it’s hard to watch. It’s really hard to watch a kid crying out in pain after being slammed, punched, and thrown into a bookshelf. I’m trying really hard to remain objective right now, but it’s really hard.

You’re a parent. You’re supposed to protect your kids from harm not cause it. Kids will test your patience (I would be lying if I said my kids didn’t test mine.), but that’s what kids do. Kids are going to misbehave and get on your nerves. Your videos are disgusting and hard to watch. I have no idea why Youtube let this guy monetize this shit and make money off of it.


This situation is bad. I feel bad for the kids in that household because it’s not safe for them. I really hope something is done about all of this and I’m using my small blog here to help spread information about it. Abuse is something that no kid should ever experience, but the truth is many of them do.

What do you think of this? Am I out of line? Do you agree?

I’m having some issues with my PC and right now it’s looking like it’s going to need some minor repairs. I don’t know if that’s going to impact my posting here yet, but if I’m not around for a little while after this post that’s why :).

    History is repeating itself. There have been a few prank channels in the past that claim they were faking it after getting bad press for things such as harassing women.

    On the plus side they won’t be making much ad revenue anymore. Youtube is tightening the purse strings because a lot of advertisers have ditched them (something about adverts appearing on Nazi videos.)

      Yeah. Youtube is really cracking down on their advertisements. Shit like this though… it bothers me. I’m a dad and I would never do the things this man is doing to his kids for money.

    Hate is a strong word to use against anything in my opinion. I watch Youtube regularly and Youtubers like Philip Defranco talk about what’s going on in the world. Not everyone is a major douche-bag like they guy I wrote about here.

    I’m a dad and it really bothered me watching all of this, but if it wasn’t for another Youtuber calling him out on his shit no one would have ever known about it. I just can’t believe he actually makes money for what he does to his kids.

      Seems like you’re upset about what I wrote to you. Why? I’m not going to condemn all of Youtube over one guy’s actions.

      I don’t delete any comments in my comments section unless it’s spam. You can express yourself however you like even if I don’t agree with it. That’s the beauty of opinions.

        I didn’t take what wrote to heart, but it seems like you took what I wrote to yours. I stand by what I said about Youtube. I wasn’t trying to rile you up, but when someone says they hate something to me I would like to know why. You never stated why you hated Youtube in your first comment and I wrote about three sentences about that so I have no idea how, or why, you thought I was focused way too hard on it when I wasn’t. I have a Youtube channel, and I know some successful Youtubers. You’ll find people like the douche I talked about all over the place not just on Youtube or Facebook. There’s wordpress users that are just as bad too. It’s everywhere, but everyone is entitled to their opinions. And I’m not sure you have a case because you’re honestly pretty one sided in this topic. Nothing is perfect. Youtube, Facebook, Twitch, WordPress, etc. I don’t know what you search for and watch on Youtube, but I don’t go out of my way to look for the bad in it. This just popped up on one of my favorite Youtube channels and I researched it, and wrote about it.

        I’m not trying to rile you up or upset you dude.

          I encourage you to speak your mind whenever you want dude :). I didn’t take offense to anything you wrote. You’re obviously passionate about this topic and if you feel like sharing the reason why here or through more private means feel free. I appreciate your honesty. Most people would just be super nice about it, but you always tell it like it is.

    Thank you so much for posting this .

    Cody and i believe the only sister in the family Emma doesn’t belong to the mother you see in the DaddyOFive videos (The reason why is because there’s a woman who goes by a pen name called rose and she says how she’s cody and emma’s birth mother i’m not sure there is a video where she’s talking to a youtuber about it and i could happily give you the link for that if you like) And i could be wrong so please correct me if i’m wrong thank you for reading and thank you for your time

      You’re not incorrect with the info that you shared. You can feel free to link the video you found below if you wish. I hope the kids get through this situation okay and the more people that share, write, and acknowledge what’s going on in that house the better chance they’ll have.

      Thank you for reading/commenting :).
